Andy Duguid (GB)
Andy Duguid’s career took off in September 2006 when the mighty Tiësto picked up his production “Hypocrisy”. The support of the grand elite of DJ’s followed soon after that when Hypocrisy gained heavy support during sets of Paul van Dyk and Armin van Burren, after being added to Tiësto’s playlist for many consecutive weeks. Being signed to Black Hole after the bidding war that followed, Hypocrisy landed on the 5th spot of the Dutch Dance Charts and simultaneously landed the career of Andy Duguid, instantly establishing a name for him in the almost impregnable forest of producers in the scene as we know it today. The official follow up “Don’t Belong” followed the same path, hailed by the industry as one of the biggest tracks of 2007. Don’t Belong initially got signed to Tiësto’s In Search of Sunrise and it didn’t take long before Black Hole picked up the single for official release. As a result of his high quality production work, Andy Duguid soon became a frequent remixer for numerous prolific artists. He has worked with the likes of Tiësto, Johan Gielen, Phynn, Filo & Peri, Richard Durand and Mr. Sam to name a few, which were released on labels such as Maelstrom, Sola Record and Songbird. Next to his Andy Duguid moniker, Andy produces under various successful alter egos such as Reeves, Corsie and Emilio Fernandez, with recent releases as Reeves on Above & Beyond’s Anjuna label. Andy’s debut album “Believe” was released in October 2010 to critical acclaim and included collaborations with acclaimed producers and vocalists such as Julie Thompson, Leah, Alanah, Donna & Anthony, Esmaye, Solarstone and Dutch singer/songwriter I-Fan, who featured on Funkerman’s global hit release “Speed Up”. If his fast paced organic development wasn’t enough, Tiësto named Andy as his “producer of the year” in DJ Mag, a superb accolade for this talented producer. In the latter end of 2009 and into 2010, Andy finished producing Julie Thompson’s debut artist album for Black Hole, along with numerous exciting projects for games companies, including his remix of Alone in the Dark “Inferno” for Atari Games and recent remixes for Crystal Method, John O’Callaghan, Fred Baker, Cosmic Gate, Super 8 & Tab, Anjuna Records, Vandit, Enhanced, Armada and Motion. He’s busily writing new singles and preparing to start writing for his second album, one that is greatly anticipated following the successes of ‘Believe’. ‘Miracle Moments’, Andy’s debut mix compilation, has just been released on Songbird, along with the accompanying single of the same title, featuring vocals from Andy’s long time collaborative singer, Leah, who featured on his Wasted and Don’t Belong singles. Alongside his productions, his DJing is taking him to every corner of the world, through Europe, Africa and Asia and onwards to the USA where he has just returned from his debut tour.
